Follow These Tips and Tricks for the Best in Home Entertainment
When it comes to your multi-room audio system, it's important to know that it's good for a lot more than just pulling up music on a nearby speaker. Even though that's the main benefit that reels people in, there's a lot more you can do with a professional home audio installation.
There are a lot of unique tips, tricks, and ideas that will help you embrace a home audio solution that is not only easier to use, but much more fun than you could have imagined. Dazzle friends and enhance your day-to-day lifestyle with these tips. As you read, we hope they’ll inspire you to come up with unique ways to use the multi-room audio system in your Sugar Land, Texas-area home as well.
Distinct Audio Zones
Do you like listening to different music than your kids or spouse? Build separate audio zones throughout the house by grouping speakers together. Each zone is designed not to bleed into the others so you can listen to one thing in the kitchen and your kids can listen to something else in the playroom. All it takes is a few taps on your screen to pull up your music and choose in which zone you want it to play.
Native Streaming Services
Music streaming services have transformed the way people listen to music. Each offers thousands of songs and artists, so it's easy to find what matches your mood at any time. The one caveat is sometimes you need multiple apps since some artists are only available on certain platforms. A Control4 solution brings them all together through its native streaming services. Within seconds, find music on Deezer, Spotify, Pandora, TIDAL, and iHeartRadio – all from the same app.
Quick Volume Control
Have a quick volume adjustment you’d like to make to your music but feel too lazy to go back into the app on your phone or tablet? Every time you use your multi-room audio system through one of these smart devices, you can use their tactile buttons on the side for volume changes. And if that’s still too much work, just tell Alexa to turn it down a notch!
Integrate with Scenes
Next, integrate your multi-room audio with the rest of your smart home technology in preset scenes. Activate these manually or have them occur automatically at a given time. Make a "Good Morning" scene that pulls up a curated Spotify playlist, opens the shades and lowers the thermostat when it's time to get up in the morning. Every time you host friends, pull up a "Party" scene that starts the music and even changes the color of the lights in your foyer, kitchen and dining room.
Upgrade Your Doorbell
One unique way to combine your different technology is to link up your doorbell with your multi-room audio. Forget about the traditional monotone ring; Play a specific song when someone arrives. On this one, you can let your personality shine! Need some inspiration? Puns are always great: Knocking on Heaven’s Door, Be Our Guest, or Hello (Both the Lionel Richie and Adele varieties).
